    I was watching a PBS special called Appalachia and in the first episode, there was a reference to trading routes between the Indians of the Upper Midwest and those of ffice:smarttags” />Appalachia. Unfortunately, I was not recording so the exact phrasing escapes me now. Did anyone else catch this? If trading occurred before Wasicu arrived, it could have some significance to the “Blackfeet Connection”, language commonality, etc. I hope the series re-airs so I can see if they list any sources that I could access. Maybe someone here has something.

    I too saw this on PBS, very interesting…I would like to see the history of Appalachia opened up…but that may be difficult…like my family, few words are spoken and not much has been written down…to find something would truly be a treasure!

    Hope all is well with you David:)

    Shirley, there is a site called Metcalf Family Mews. Anyone can go to this site to look for Adkins Families. Just do a search for Metcalf Family Mews, when you get there look for a box should say search. I’m not saying your Adkins are there, but check and see. CarolynPigg…tenderfoot1954@yahoo.com
